Solutions for Black America

Front Cover
African American Images, 2004 - Political Science - 207 pages
Contending that the media and the black community allocate too much of their efforts to talking about the problems afflicting the African American community, this book attempts to reverse that trend by offering solutions in many areas, including education, family, health, economics, politics, organising, and Afrocentricity. Concerned that one-third of black America and one-half of its children live below the poverty line, activist and educator Jawanza Kunjufu expresses his concern about whether affirmative action and integration have really helped this population. Many diverse schools of thought are expressed, from the differences between Ward Connerly and Jesse Jackson and between US Supreme Justice Clarence Thomas and Al Sharpton. Also addressed is what percentage of the problem and their solutions lie with the effects of slavery and what portion should be addressed by self-responsibility.
